Summary :

The revolutionary forces have won. The defeat of the last bastion of the old order means a new order for all. With the old order go the old values, the old ideas, and... the old colors. New colors will take the place of the old: Redor, the color of the flag, of victory; Angeyel, a delicate hue, best viewed in subdued light; Lowgre, the color of arms, and of armor, a strong color; Enblue, the color of truth, and straightforward dealing, the color of the new currancy; Eindi, a trivial, fashionable-at-the-moment color; and finally, Goviolet, the color of what may be, of hopes, and of dreams. The new colors symbolize the new order of the revolution. The new order, the symbol of a new beginning -- hope for the future.
